Only Jesus Grace Works by David Garner

Theology regularly gets a bad rap. "Don't give me doctrine. I want something practical." "I like sermons that touch my heart, not those that fill my head." Or, "Come on. I'm not interested in all this theology. I just want to love Jesus."

Stated or assumed, such ideas have stormed the Church like ants at a picnic. But they also devastate the Church like the ants' destructive cousins. Theology bashers are termites, who eat away at the Church's very pillars­­--the apostles' teaching. And theological antipathy has no fans in heaven. Scripture rebukes those who have little time for theological substance: "For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil."  (Hebrews 5:12-14)
